Introduction to Preservation Metadata (SEFLIN)

This class introduces preservation metadata as the information you need to know to preserve digital assets over the long term. It reviews the background and context for preservation metadata, the efforts to establish a standard for this information, the PREMIS data model, and how to get started in establishing the infrastructure for preservation metadata.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Define what preservation metadata is and how it relates to and overlaps with other metadata types
  • Outline the goals of preservation metadata
  • Understand the types of entities that are covered and how they relate to each other
  • Review the history of the development of PREMIS
  • Gain a basic understanding of the implementation models

This class is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Division of Preservation and Access.
